FlyerTalk Forums Expert How-Tos and Guides
Last edit by: tcook052
This new annual thread has been carved out of the previous thread in an effort to reduce the number of megathreads on the AC forum. For those interested previous versions are the original 2004 - 2014 thread , 2015 edition, 2016 edition , 2017 edition and 2018 edition.

The original thread started by accident but quickly became a popular place to come and discuss off topic things such as hockey, new movies, or almost anything that wouldn't fit into existing AC forum threads. Air Canada or Aeroplan topics such as flight feedback, in-flight services issues, status or mileage earning/redemption are all topics that should go into existing AC forum threads so others can benefit from this information. Topics about hotels or airlines and/or their loyalty programs, destinations, in-flight travel tech. or anything best discussed elsewhere on FT may be relocated to that forum as this thread isn't meant to import travel topics to this forum that are better discussed on other forums. FT is an amazingly diverse and large community so members are encouraged to seek out all of its resources.

While the conversation is more relaxed as it would be in a lounge that doesn't mean however that the FT rules don't apply here as they definitely do so please refrain from controversial topics such as politics or religion, avoid profanities and treat other lounge patrons with the same respect you expect.

In this thread? Probably.

But not the first mention in this forum this year. And it wasn't from me.

This thread is awesome today. Thanks for the chuckles.

Also, what is the actual genesis of Royal Canadian High Horse Mounted Police? (the search function at least transated RCHHMP for me)

You're welcome. At least for my kick-start of the day here with the luggage that follows you around.

As [MENTION=759220]Adam Smith[/MENTION] said, [MENTION=29064]yyznomad[/MENTION] is the owner of RCHHMP.

(I do recall paging them in one post recently)

There's an FT Translate app?!

I think IB should focus on making the FT search engine work as a an actual (useful) search engine first before diving into translation services.
Bohemian1 and 24left like this.

He was here but [MENTION=29064]yyznomad[/MENTION] still doesn't want to explain.

Fine. I don't need an explanation. I have enough info to know I am guilty of this frequently.

Actually, you're not guilty at all.

What if I have 2 alter egos? One flies only UA K fares and the other will remind you of an app that will identify a song just from hearing a small portion of it.

There's a medical term for that:

evil twin
noun
  1. a. An identical twin or unrelated person who has a similar appearance to a decent or moral person but who wreaks havoc or does evil.
    b. An imaginary double humorously invoked to explain or excuse uncharacteristic or reprehensible behavior.

I assure you that none of your egos are guilty.

And K fare buyers are not guilty either.

TFW you open your laptop on the train and cant work out where that music is coming from until you realize YouTube has cached music and decided to treat my fellow pax.

Grrrr. Im sure its a useful feature for some but when I hit stop on it and put my laptop to sleep, I expect it to stay stopped when it wakes up!
